I have been casually following "the football" and it's come to the point where I've finally picked a team. After careful consideration based on performance, reputation and spirit (i.e. fun to watch, cute players, and flattering team colors) I've selected Arsenal.*
Partly because while watching the World Cups this year I really admired Lehmann and Henry and recognizing players on the field makes the game more fun to watch (especially when they're really good!). Ok so they're not doing all that great but they certainly aren't doing bad. And I didn't want to jump on the bandwagon upon arrival and go for ManU or Chelsea, which would be pretty much the equivalent of rooting for the Yankees or Lakers and I ain't down for that (sorry, Ans).
And apparently the Arsenal Ladies kick major... well, they kick major arse. That's cool.
The strips are cute too, no?
*for the English premier league. For the Scottish premier league it's Kilmarnock, duh.
Edited to add: After publishing this I toyed with the idea of naming the post "Arse-imilation is complete" but the pun for the last post was bad enough to put you through so I decided against it. You're welcome.
